PA campgrounds are now closed.
To all those contributing, thanks for the info. Both the husband and me are diabetic, and nearly 70. With all of my terminal diagnoses, except for his work, we are practically house bound, and being very cautious. All updates are really appreciated! Our plans to have a short vacay in the northeast, utilizing forest service or blm sites (yes, there are a few), may be in serious jepoardy. If you travel, fair weather and good roads to all. Stay safe out there!

State parks and camping remain open. In response to Gov. Inslee’s mandate, we are making the following changes to operations through April 30:
We are taking additional measures to limit visitor and staff interactions at offices and at registration. This includes:
We ask that all visitors exhibit personal responsibility and take steps to protect their health and the health of others.
As the situation changes, we will continue to follow the governor and public health officials’ guidance when it comes to managing our park system.
This is dumb, a State Park campground with 20+ feet between everyone is safer than a city!cheers
Good point, but if you feel ill do not travel, if you feel ill while traveling, go home. I was thinking more of parks being used by local area residents, say within 200 miles so it is an easy day trip to get to a recreation area destination. Yes Ione parks require workers, but with normal prudent precautions, maintaining an open park with minimal staff for day or overnight use, should not be any different from a supermarket remaining open. A store will have more issues with more people per square foot, compared to a open area park. One could always limit how many are using it at a time, like cut camp sites in half to create more separation.just some random thoughts...cheers
